This place is special to me because Georgia is such a magical journey in the fall! The mountains and lakes are like a jewel box with all the changing leaf colors. We just recently started taking our camper and enjoying the serenity of the woods, lakes, campfires and all beautiful state parks!
Honestly a trip to Astoria is worth it for Frite & Scoop alone, but here are a few more fun stops, since they don't let you go up to the Goonies house anymore!! If you go the right time of year, the sea lions will be waiting for you, just listen for their barking and meander down the Astoria Riverwalk til you find a couple hundred of them in a pile!
This place is special to me because of the time I lived there. Washington DC is known to the rest of the nation for politics, but for the locals, the upmost importance is given to happy hour and BRUNCH! Saturday and Sunday brunches happen all over the city and I wanted to share some of my favorites along with the dish they are best known for. Bon appetit!
I live on the eastern tip of Long Island NY. We have more lighthouses in our township than any other in the US. Here are some of my favorites to draw, paint and visit. You can see them by car and boat. If you love lighthouses you should come visit!
This place is special to me because I will always remember the first time I drove through these neighborhoods and simply could not believe that such a fairytale setting existed in the real world! Earl Young was a self-taught builder and architect who built both commercial and residential structures. The majority of his creations lie within the two areas shown on this map (each mushroom on the map is the location of another Earl Young house). Pure magic! And special year-round, even in winter.
This place is special to me because it feels like a living work of art. The expansive sky paints the dramatic desert below in light that is both energizing and calming. It's an area where artisan craft and skill is honored in everything from food to jewelry to weaving to architecture. I love to walk around the plaza and breathe in the crisp, cool air, surrounded by the beauty of native plants and succulents, warmed by the walls of adobe buildings. Among my favorite things to do are shopping for hand-woven textiles, sipping a handcrafted cocktail or beer, dining on authentic southwestern cuisine, and strolling the stands of exquisite Native American jewelry at the Palace of the Governors. Santa Fe is the embodiment of the state nickname "Land of Enchantment".
This place is special to me because of the rich culture you get to experience everywhere you turn! Frankenmuth to me is like that cozy feeling you get during Christmas time but all year long and It’s somewhere I can spend countless hours in and never get bored!
This place is special to me because when my best friend and I were both 23, we took the roadtrip of a lifetime! We started in Michigan, spent a week driving out west, a week down the coast, and a week driving back. It was unforgettable and introduced me to some of my now favorite places, like western Montana and San Francisco!
This place is special to me because I was born and raised here. My Grandparents were born and raised here and built their house from digging the basement up! My Mom was born and raised here. I lived here until I moved away after college in 1997. This town still holds so many memories and amazing nostalgic places. It might not be a typical vacation destination or even mean much to anyone who wasn't born or lived here but it has a history that is quite amazing! It is located in the middle of Illinois between Springfield and Chicago, smack in the middle of soybean and cornfields. It is after all known as the Soybean Capital of the World. Decatur was known to be one of the stops on the Underground Railroad, was the first home to Abraham Lincoln, and was a top secret location that produced parts of the atomic bombs in the Manhattan Project during World War II. The restaurants, parks, lakes, and factories featured on my map brought Decatur residents together and made many wonderful memories. Many of these places are no longer existing but their memories live on in our hearts and minds and now on my map of Decatur, Illinois.
This map is special to me because Manhattan is one of the most vibrant and overwhelming cities I've ever visited. This is a place that truly made me feel small (but in the BEST way!). This map includes just a few of the many highlights of my trip, some sentimental - some just good ol' touristy destinations! Everyone should visit this magical place at least once in their lives!!
